Event Summary
This established show of 17 years will be limited to approximately 110 Artists and Craftsmen from around the country.  It has been very well received and ranked #23 in Sunshine Artists Magazine's top 100 best Fine Art Shows for 2017. The show is held in Main Street Station and The Village at Breckenridge, the same location as the July Show in the beautifull historic town of Breckenridge, CO.  Breckenridge is  located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, only 80 miles west of Denver in Summit County (includes Copper Mountain, Frisco, Silverthorne, and Keystone). Breckenridge is easily accessable from I-70 for Vail and Beaver creek and the entire front range (Denver, Fort Collins, Boulder, Colorado Springs).  This is a very affluent and highly educated community which has a large number of summer tourists at this time of year.  You won't want to miss this fabulous weekend of art and mountain ambience.

General Information

     This is held on Thursday, Friday, Saturday to take advantage of the fact that the turnover on rental units for tourists is Friday.  That way we get the people that are at the end of their vacation and those that are just starting their time here.  Sunday is a travel day for all the people going back to the front range early to beat the traffic so that day is usually a very light day. 

Also note that the event is half on both plazas- about 60 booths at each. We will do our best to accomodate requests.
